National Hockey League will not suspend Capitals forward Tom Wilson for Game 2 hit

When Kris Letang scored at 13:04 after some pretty offensive zone work by the Crosby line, you sat up and wondered if Braden Holtby would collapse the way he did in game one. The NHL Situation Room initiated a video review. The Capitals also were the beneficiary of a questionable video review in the third period when the National Hockey League ruled there were no definitive replays showing the puck crossed the goal line on what would have been Pittsburgh's second goal. Sullivan said Malkin did not experience a setback and could return for Game 3 in Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

The Penguins were furious, saying they did their own homework. "But you can clearly see that if the puck is on its edge, behind the post, it's not possible for it to touch the line". Losing twice on home ice to Columbus is one thing.

Holtby wasn't sure if it was a goal. I kind of spun around, and by the time I looked, the puck was on the goal line, and I tried to get my right foot back to try to keep it out. They have a.636 winning percentage this season in games following a loss. Alex Ovechkin was speeding at Dumoulin on the forecheck. The Penguins defenseman was skating up ice, but adjusted his position to brace for a hit from Ovechkin.

According to multiple reports, Capitals forward Tom Wilson will not face a disciplinary hearing for a Game 2 hit on the Penguins' Brian Dumoulin and will thus avoid any suspension.

Then, with five seconds left in a power play, rookie Jakub Vrana maneuvered through three Pittsburgh sticks to get to the front of the net and beat Murray glove side. Murray had time to recover after the contact from Connolly while that contact did not really alter his ability to stop the puck. "Obviously it's a big collision". I think we try to rally around one another.


"I don't think anybody really knew", Washington forward Brett Connolly said. At the last second, I see [Ovechkin] coming in, and you can see me bracing too.

CLEVELAND (AP) - LeBron James scored 45 points and got some needed help in Game 7 to stay unbeaten in the opening round of the playoffs, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a win over the Indiana Pacers, who pushed the game's best player to the limit. I'm at no point trying to target the head at all.

"It's a bit of an unfortunate play that he got hurt", he said. Most importantly, the Capitals continued to build on their lead rather than cling to it.

Sullivan opted not to comment on the hit in his news conference.

Early in the second period of Game 2, Wilson and Alex Ovechkin collided with Dumoulin, with Wilson making contact with Dumoulin's head. "As a goalie, just want to be able to do your job. So I was disappointed". As has been said no less than a thousand times heading into this post-season series between the two teams, Pittsburgh has a ideal record across the three meetings between the Crosby-led Penguins and Ovechkin-led Capitals in the playoffs.
